Construction Inspection Handbook Book Review:

In addition to quality control (QC), this book introduces the concept of quality assurance (QA). Quality assurance has a number of definitions, but in general is the combination of the quality assurance plan with procedures through which the quality control inspector can inspect in the field. The book is arranged in categories so that is can be used in handbook fashion; each section stands independent of the others. The arrangement of the major portion of the book is organized in the same format as we usually find in building construction specification, the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) format.

Construction Site Planning and Logistical Operations Book Review:

Organising and administering a construction site so that the right resources get to the right place in a timely fashion demands strong leadership and a rigorous process. Good logistical operations are essential to profitability, and this book is the essential, muddy boots guide to efficient site management. Written by experienced educator-practitioners from the world-leading Building Construction Management programme at Purdue University, this volume is the ultimate guide to the knowledge, skills, and abilities that need to be mastered by project superintendents. Observations about leadership imperatives and techniques are included. Organisationally, the book follows site-related activities from bidding to project closeout. Beyond outlining broad project managerial practices, the authors drill into operational issues such as temporary soils and drainage structures, common equipment, and logistics. The content is primarily geared for the manager of a domestic or small commercial building construction project, but includes some reference to public and international work, where techniques, practices, and decision making can be substantially different. The book is structured into five sections and fifteen chapters. This facilitates ready adaptation either to industry training seminars or to university courses: Section I. The Project and Site Pre-Planning: The Construction Project and Site Environment (Randy Rapp); Due Diligence (Robert Cox); Site Organization and Layout (James O'Connor). Section II. The Site and Field Engineering Issues: Building Layout (Douglas Keith); Soil and Drainage Issues (Yi Jiang and Randy Rapp). Section III. Site Logistics: Site Logistical Procedures and Administration (Daphene Koch); Earthmoving (Douglas Keith); Material Handling Equipment (Bryan Hubbard). Section IV. Leadership and Control: Leadership and Communication (Bradley Benhart); Health, Safety, Environment (HSE), and Security (Jeffrey Lew); Project Scheduling (James Jenkins); Project Site Controls (Joseph Orczyk); Inspection and QA/QC (James Jenkins). Section V. Planning for Completion: Site-Related Contract Claims (Joseph Orczyk); Project Closeout (Randy Rapp).

Disaster Recovery Project Management Book Review:

The scope of disasters ranges from man-made emergency to natural calamity, from a kitchen grease fire to a hurricane or volcanic eruption. While each type of event requires a very different scale and type of immediate response, the project management challenges that face restoration and reconstruction professionals after the emergency phase is complete are remarkably similar. Using decades of real-world experience and academic research, the author explains pertinent requirements and methods for the contractors and other professionals who bring order from chaos. This is the first systematic presentation of the tools and skills needed for disaster recovery project management. It is designed primarily for contractors, although it will also be of value for those who might hire them, the communities they serve, and their organizational partners in the disaster recovery effort. The volume is focused on informing the management of projects that recover the built environment after emergency conditions are sufficiently stabilized, and supplements and complements books devoted to conventional construction or emergency relief management.

Introduction to Intelligent Construction Technology of Transportation Infrastructure Book Review:

This book expounds on the related technologies of intelligent transportation infrastructure construction. Based on the essential characteristics of intelligent construction, "perception, analysis, decision-making, and execution," the basic structure of intelligent construction technology (ICT) is established. With the integration of engineering construction technologies, the analyses of the essence of intelligent algorithms and the feasibility of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are provided. The book introduces the essential characteristics of Big Data and the Internet of Things and their relationship with engineering construction. On this basis, the feasibility and implementation plan of intelligent technology applications in design, construction, and maintenance are analyzed and demonstrated with engineering examples. The book also combines ICT with intelligent construction talent training, the professional knowledge required for intelligent construction, and the theoretical basis to provide the methods for mastering new technologies. This book can be used by technical personnel in related fields such as highways, railways, airports, and urban road construction to understand and master innovative, intelligent construction technologies. It can also be a reference book for ICT-related college courses.
